TUV doesn’t have any significance in the UK, although if it’s good enough for the Germans then it’s probably good enough for us over here.
B14’s for Transporters in the UK won’t have a TUV rating because they have been modified by a third party and therefore won’t have been subjected to TUV testing.
As I always point out, 100’s, probably 1000’s of B14’s out on the road, and a relatively small percentage of unhappy customers who had them fitted and set up badly or a few sets with duff springs and/or shocks.
And yes there are alternatives these days that offer better value for money and handling, but that doesn’t make B14’s suddenly crap.
I didn’t say they were crap was just asking a question.
Some people seem to ask more questions about the safety of a bed. Which are not all suddenly crap because I don’t have what someone else has etc, etc, etc !
In what way are they modified here in UK ? And you are correct if they were modified that would invalidate any possible TUV status. the bad design of the front spring would be an issue for TUV I would have thought . if a front spring broke there is no protection to stop the broken spring puncturing the front tyres ?..
Large diameter springs. Should have a large diameter supporting plate to stop broken springs coming into contact with the Tyre as per standard suspension. All proper height adjustable kits have small diameter springs to ensure the spring can’t get close the Tyre .
TUV approval to what standard exactly? I would take any claim of 'TUV approved' with a very large pinch of salt until you understand exactly that that claim means. Just remember that TUV were responsible for approving the PIP breast implants and look how that worked out.
